Kelly’s Vegetable Garden May 29, 2010 – Update 2

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

Hello everyone. This is a quick video update for my garden. Not much to talk about other than massive growth and lots of tomatoes popping out everywhere. I keep getting spinach, lettuce and broccoli because it has been so cool here. Today was our first day in the 80’s and it looks like it’s going to continue for a while which is good news for the garden. My next video should be a lot more interesting because I will have more to talk about. I couldn’t do any upside down garden this year because the fence belongs to my neighbor and he wasn’t too keen on me do it…. so I have decided to do something that I haven’t done before but I have always wanted to. In addition to planting a bunch more things in wine barrel containers, I’m putting together a hydroponic garden. I have been cloning plants for a long time but I thought it would be interesting to start growing them hydroponically and compare the growth using traditional methods. It should be interesting. I will try to do a video of the entire building process so stay tuned. In the meantime, happy gardening. Kelly

    Kelly’s Vegetable Garden July 9, 2010 – Update 3 / Harvest 1

    Monday, July 18th, 2011

    Well, I figured it was time to do an update / harvest video. It’s July, 9, 2010 at about 8:00pm and I was harvesting tomatoes when I decided to do an update. As you can see, I am getting a ton of tomatoes and squash. The cucumbers and peppers are finally moving along and I should be harvesting them soon as well. Also, I have cantaloupe starting to form and hopefully my plan of setting them on planks across the wire cage will work…. We’ll see… All in all, it has been a great growing season so far and I couldn’t be more pleased with the result. I still plan on doing so hydroponic garden but I decided to wait until the end of the season to do that. I’m also going to put in a greenhouse so with any luck I will be growing things throughout the year. Here in Napa Valley the growing season is very long and I’m going to try to make it a year around thing. I plan on recording the process of building the hydroponic system that I have designed as well as the assembly of the greenhouse so I will keep you posted on that. I hope everyone enjoys these videos and if anyone has any suggestions, questions or comments, don’t hesitate to post them. Take care everyone and happy gardening!!

        Best indoor gardening (hydroponic etc)?

        Friday, December 17th, 2010

        My girlfriend enjoys gardening but currently lives in the city to attend college. I am looking to get her a way to garden without an outdoor gardening system for christmas. She wants to grow smaller herbs and vegetables but does not have any outdoor room as she lives in a dorm.

        Can anyone suggest an indoor system for growing multiple plants that also occupies minimal space with the best results?

        I have looked into hydroponic and aeroponic systems but as I am a Poli. sci major I have no clue what to look for. Any suggestions would be great.
